According to Leland K. Meitzler:

“Name lists are key to success in any genealogical endeavor. Name lists, be they national, state, county, or even city or town in scope can help nail down the precise place where one’s ancestor may have lived. And if that can be done, further records, usually found on a local level, will now be accessible to research. But success depends on knowing where the ancestor resided. This is where Dollarhide’s Name List guides can make the difference.”
